program DIRECTOR

Nabiha saklayen, PHd

"we all hold unconscious biases, myself included, that have formed due to our experiences and environment. When people are surprised to meet a physicist who looks like me, it isn't really their fault. It's often the first time they've met a physicist who is a woman, and looks so starkly different than einstein or sheldon cooper, and it just feels weird.

the only way to change the status quo is to introduce more diversity; to deconstruct the stereotypes we grew up with." -n.s.
